This was such a great experience!! So much fun and beautiful views of the skyline. Highly recommend!

Well, it started out good. The boat goes through the river and the commentator describes some of the older, historical buildings along the way. Then the boat turns around only maybe halfway through the river. When we got to the line waiting to get into the lake, the commentator took a break and said he'd be back a little later. I was hoping the little later was to continue his commentary on the lake. That never happened and he never came back on.

The boat position on the lake to view the fireworks was just fine.

This was absolutely horrible. I have done the cruise a few years ago and had a wonderful experience, this time, not at all. I see why the price went down b/c the quality has as well. I am still not certain why the boat stopped and we were stuck out there, b/c no one bothered to explain it to us, no apologies, NOTHING... I am grateful that we were able to get the full experience, EVENTUALLY, but again, the fact that we were stuck out there, with no explanation at all, really showed their lack of customer service. I will never do this again.

Just awesome!

The cruise was fine. I don't think you need the 3D glasses, very few people used them. The whole process was very easy.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip - not sure whether 3D glasses added much to the fireworks but a nice gimmick

Beautiful! Just beautiful! sat on the left side facing the direction the boat was going upstairs and had the most astonishing view of Chicagos skyline and the fireworks. The guide also did a very good job at telling interesting details about the city's history and architechture. It was soooo worth it!

It was a great experience.

Fun and informative trip on the lake. The announcer was so well informed about all of the chicago architecture and history, also the science behind the locks necessary to departing from the river to the lake. I did have a little problem with the diesel fumes sitting in the rear of the boat while idling when waiting for the water to rise in the locks to go out to the lake. Wonderful fireworks.

Loved this tour. It was by far the best way to see the Chicago skyline. The fireworks were amazing also. Another plus to this cruise is the fact that you get the experience of going through the lock to get onto Lake Michigan.
